This is my first exhibition with the IAS so I didn’t know what to expect. Quite a difficult venue to get to – The Tottenham Library – not somewhere I’m familiar with but it turned out to be one of those artistic areas – an oasis in an otherwise dreary part of London.
The PV was packed out!! The pianist played away enthusiastically which greatly added to the atmosphere, as did having plenty of wine and very nice food – I’m sure that encouraged sales as it wasn’t long before red dots began to appear. It was catching – and I couldn’t resist buying a beautiful stoneware bowl.
There is my bowl and the artistic lady in red is Judy Graham – the creator.
The sales team with some of the colourful paintings on the wall behind them.
Some of my favourite paintings can be seen behind the pianist.
A painting of grasses after my own heart – lots of masking fluid needed to achieve THAT effect!!! The pencil drawing – The Tower of Babel by Peter Kirkillo is very creepy when you get up close and see the details!! I thought the landscape – Walking Down to the Ponds in Hampstead by Mei-Yimlow very like a Duffy!
I was invigilating during the afternoon with Sue Irwin-Hunt who will be selling her jewellery tomorrow at The Fair in the Square Highgate. Seen here busy getting herself organised during a quiet spell.
